Mentor of Game Programming

Elias Jacobs

From the first Charmander he ever got in Pokemon Blue, Elias knew his future was in game dev (or as an astronaut in space, but he wasn't short enough to fit in a spacesuit. So game dev it was!)

After graduating as a game programmer from Digital Arts and Entertainment in Belgium, Elias moved to Berlin where he kicked off his career in games at Phantom 8 Studio. Together with the team he successfully released Past Cure - a third-person action-adventure game with stealth, shooter, horror and story elements.

Elias then went from indie dev to AAA dev getting hired as an Animation Programmer at Build a Rocket Boy Studio in Edinburgh where he is currently working on a soon-to-be-released game called Everywhere.
